Staycation Day 10

Almost last day of projects around the house, focused on my office and craft corner, still not great but way better than it was:


In the evening, my mighty Sun Devils were playing in the last bowl game of the season, the Cactus Bowl, so we had a few folks over for Fajitas, margaritas and Mexican Mules – mmmm.  Food and friends were great, losing to West Virginia by one point was not so awesome…


Staycation Day 9

Another day at home for the most part, finishing our 2015 recap which you’ve hopefully watch by now – the biggest highlight is our trip video from Vancouver Island, make sure you watch it!

Then capped off the first day of the new year with a delicious dinner with some of our nearest & dearest


Staycation Day 8

New Years Eve!  Spent most of the day downtown with the in-laws , watching football from a waiting room


Eventually escaped to home for a yummy dinner – crab cakes & fancy champagne, a repeat splurge from last year – plus BK poached some pears with his new sous vide machine…

Then headed east to LCW to take on KC2 in a mostly friendly match of Mexican Train dominoes – girls rule!


Staycation Day 7

worked in the home office for the morning a bit, then headed over to Greenwood to stay with my cutest neighbor Izzy for a few hours so SS could get some work done – D is 4 delicious!

Then in the evening went north to Edmonds for Trivia night celebrating TA’s birthday – so fun to catch up with them and others, plus we won!  It helped that we had the birthday girl on our team 🙂


Staycation Day 6

started off pretty great with breakfast in bed – thanks BK!


then we tackled another organizing project, a new shelf in the basement for kitchen appliances, yay!

BK played with his new sous vide machine and torch for dinner, yum:


and capped off the night with wine & desserts with the neighbors (yay for awesome neighbors!)

Staycation Day 5

Actual project day – clean and organize the garage.


First stop Costco to buy a new industrial strength shelving unit:


Next, clean everything out of the way and assemble the new shelf:


Lastly, put everything back nicely and make a dump run:


Oh yeah, and then go celebrate all your hard work with a yummy dinner at Harvest Vine, mmmm…
